“The further I read in the clear text of this book, the more interested and informed I became ... helpful … clearly written practitioner’s book … useful”From the Foreword by The Rt. Hon Sir Nicholas Wall,
President of the Family Division; Head of Family Justice; President of the Court of Protection
The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive, practical guide to applications under Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989. It is aimed at those who do these cases regularly as well as those who have little experience of them. The authors are a team of barristers at 1 Garden Court who, between them, have experience of a wide range of such applications. Flowcharts have been included to assist with navigating procedure in different situations.
We have enjoyed our ‘in-house’ collaboration on this book and hope it will prove useful to our readers.

To the unwitting, amongst whom I unhesitatingly include myself, it comes as an agreeable surprise to discover that a whole book can profitably be written about Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989. Added to which, the further I read in the clear text of this book, the more interested and informed I became.
It was, therefore, with no sense of surprise that I found the authors had – as all good practitioners should – scoured www.bailli.org and had caught up with my decision in M v V  EWHC 1453 (Fam), which they neatly summarise, whilst tactfully keeping their thoughts about it to themselves.
This is a helpful, clearly written practitioner’s book on a subject which, since the famous judgment of Ward J (as he then was) in Delaney v Delaney  2 FLR 457 (a judgment which, anecdotally – in particular the passage at 461E–G – incurred the then Prime Minister’s wrath and hastened the passing of the Child Support Act), many practitioners, wrongly as it now seems, have ignored as no longer their province or the province of the courts.
The authors are all practising members of the Bar, and have produced a clear and useful book. I wish both it and them well.
